Breast Augmentation with implant and no lift
Wanting a breast augmentation with no lift, do I need a lift to achieve the look I want?
Deciding whether a mastopexy is needed to meet your expectations at the time of breast augmentation is complicated.
Your question is complicated because your photos are difficult to analyze. It is always best to consult with a Board certified Plastic Surgeon who will provide you with options after a thorough consultation. It appears that you have small breasts will perfectly positioned nipple/areola. This would allow for a breast augmentation to achieve your result. Be sure to review options for the actual implant that could be used because we now have MANY options; saline and silicone, low profile to high, and round or shaped products. The implant chosen and the pocket created can completely change the look of your breasts. Be sure all your options are discussed so that you have the best outcome. Good Luck and Happy holidays!

Augmentation without lifts depends upon a careful examination and the patient's expectations.
An augmentation without a lift may be an option if your nipples are located at or above your infra-mammary crease fold. The implants will located centrally under your nipples, so if you are comfortable with lower breasts, this may by satisfying for you. Lifting would be a later option if the implants and breasts fall with time.
If your nipple sits below your existing crease fold, an augmentation alone would be a poor choice.
You should discuss your options with your plastic surgeon so that you both will be satisfied with your results.
Augment without lift?
First, the nipple is not "removed" in all mastopexies. I understand that many women raise issues as to the scarring, which tends to go on to heal very nicely, and this frequently diverts them from making the best decision as to the shape and size of the breasts. You have lost significant upper pole volume and with an implant alone, the cosmetic result may be suboptimal. The question is whether this would be acceptable to you. See a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss all the available options.
A proper answer to your question requires a physical examination, not just photos. I expect that attaining the size that you wish is just a matter of choosing the correct implant. But if you want nipple and areolar position like it appears in the goal pictures, a lift will probably be necessary. By the way, the nipple and areola are not removed during a breast lift.
All the best, Dr G
There are multiple techniques for these operations. Typically, there is an incision around the areola, with or without a vertical incision on the lower part of the breast. These are also referred to as donut, vertical or “lollipop” techniques. Although the “anchor-shape” or inverted “T” incision is still more popular in the United States, it represents a more dated technique with extensive scarring and a less optimal result in many cases. Newer techniques are utilized in most cases, the rare exception being extremely large breasts. The nipple-areola complex is repositioned higher, the extra skin is removed, and the breast is reshaped in a pleasing contour and in a more normal position.
Lift is essential

You need to be examined in person to determine the best options for you. You can have a BBA without a lift but I suspect that you will want a lift in the future sometime, especially if you have kids/breastfeed, etc. See a BC PS in your area.
